3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour with a soapy white head. Very peppery, phenolic nose. Tart lime and lemon zest, soap, and some hay. Coriander, dry malt, cracker, and bread. The flavor is quite dry and heavy on the spices. Big pepper and coriander notes, some citrus zest, and hay. Light bitterness, yeast, and a touch of tartness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lemony wheat aroma, light funk. Hazy golden, slight greenish tinge, thin head. Funk is mire in the forefront on the palate. Deceptively dry. Definitely sessionable, but perhaps too much so. I need something with more substance.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into tulip. Pale gold with finger of white head. Smells of coriander, light citrus, banana, and wheat. Tastes of earth, pears, and pepper. Light on the palate. Definitely refreshing but not top notch!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - I’d had this before, but I finally just got a chance to buy a fresh six pack this year. This one poured a hazy straw color with a medium-large white head. Aroma was light wheat notes, sweet light citrus character with some coriander, and pepper notes. Flavor was light, sweet grain, pepper, spice. Pretty enjoyable, light and refreshing. Easy to drink and about perfect for Spring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pale, clear yellow with a light lacy head. Rich, grassy aroma with hints of spice, apple and pear. Slight bitter taste up front followed by a light taste of spice with some citrus. Dry crisp feel in the mouth with a nice slightly bitter aftertaste. Unlike a lot of beers that taste like an alcoholic orange soft drink, the citrus and spice in this beer are light and complement the taste of the ale without overwhelming it. Good job.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Pours nuclear, piss-like yellow with a mild haze about it; gray-tinted, mostly white head quickly fades to a soapy looking collar. Aroma has notes of lemongrass, clove gum, faint citrus, & a hint of funky must. Fresh, bright, albeit a little mild. Taste has lots of dry cotton funk up front, followed by vague citrus notes, lots of yeast, mild white pepper, & a touch of bittering hops that bite in the finish. Crisp, clean finish. Nothing too special here, but decent for something you can easily slam.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear pale yellow with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy and spicy wheat malt, citrus and earthy hops with pear esters and black pepper, ginger notes. Flavor is lively spices, medium hops and bitterness, light fruity esters, supporting pale malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Thanks Jeff for the pour. A crisp golden apple color. Very fresh grassy smell. Very refreshing taste. Very drinkable. A nice peppery background. A unique funky flavor that is definitely slammable.

Meh. Best part is the smell. Not much flavor, very basic Caisson taste. Easy to drink.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
This has a strange and very noticeable smell of chlorine bleach to it. I have had two bottles from two six packs with the same results. If you don’t like beer that tastes like bleach, avoid this. It does look nice in the glass and seems to be a nice, citrusy saison underneath that but who cares when there is such an enormous flaw. It is like drinking a lemon scented cleanser only maybe not quite as poisonous.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours gold with some cloudiness and a lot of activity. The aroma is yeast, hay, orange peel, and spice. The taste adds grass and lemon but lacks overall flavor. The mouthfeel comes on strong at first then instantly fades leaving an acidic aftertaste. Maybe too much lemon. Ok overall but, I wouldn’t get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
